2014 vintage poured into a snifter. Held onto this for my 2,500 unique Untappd checkin and this blew me away. It was like drinking bourbon soaked fudge brownies. At 18.9% it took awhile to put down but I enjoyed this more than any other huge comparable beer like Chocolate Rain. I will definitely be on the lookout for more.

Serving Type: Bottle (2014)
Consumed: 11.13.15

A: 4.5 Pours pitch black with a small, tan head. Looks slick and inky in the glass.

S: 4.5 Slight alcohol smell at first, but quickly develops into more interesting aromas. Lots of bourbon and vanilla up front which then integrates into roasted malt, brownies, chocolate, molasses, and light maple syrup.

T: 4.75 Taste is really surprising. Based on the nose, I was expecting a super sweet beer that only tasted of pure alcohol; I couldn’t have been more wrong. Starts off a bit sweet but is really balanced on the strong malt profile. There’s plenty of coffee, dark chocolate, and roasty bitterness to balance out sweet vanilla, caramel, coconut, and molasses flavors. The finish lingers with port and dark berries.

M: 4.5 The feel is very rich and thick with a nice, low-level but constant carbonation. The beer doesn’t feel like 19%, but it still feels big, hindering drinkability.

O: 4.75 Definitely one of my new favorite BA stouts; up there with Parabola and BCBS. Lots of great flavors and well balanced. The maple is also a nice touch without being over done.

Possibly a bad bottle. The cork did come out exceptionally easily. All burnt coffe and alcohol. I did let this warm a bit hoping it would open up but to no avail. Was unable to discern any of the subtleties that are supposed to be apparent. Hope to experience a more recent vintage.

2015 bottle. Good stout. Mouthfeel was a little thin for me. Didn't taste like a 18.9% beer. Flavor could have been more pronounced as well. Good, but I'd take a regular BCBS over this any day.
